Blogging and writing in 2013

Blogging and writing in 2013
A new year seems like a chance for new things, new changes and new plans of creative attack. So I’ll say it up front to start the year: I will be aiming to blog everyday in 2013. So that means at least 365 new posts, but hopefully a lot more. There’s plenty of things happening ...

2012… The whirlwind…

What a year… And it’s only March! Busy back at work now, already done the initial 2012 laptop rollout, and so many other projects! I’ve joined the school/town band (playing clarinet again, no less) and am getting involved behind the scenes in the school musical this year. I’m assisting in the media publishing class at ...

New phone and new contacts

I have a new phone (an iPhone, finally in the smartphone age!) and with it a new phone number. It feels like a new age, so why not…? Anyway, if you want to contact me, smartphones are more about Twitter, Facebook and email anyway, so use those and you can get my new number as ...

New Year’s Resolutions

It’s always the time of the year to think about this thing, as we’re constantly reminded in all media… along with the constant reminder that we mostly never follow through with these things. So just for the record, here’s what I’d like to do more of this year: — Writing. Well duh, of course. I ...

Here’s what we should do Rupert

Here's what we should do Rupert
In response to this recent news: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/10/09/2710281.htm Murdoch warns Google: it’s time to pay What we all really need to do is stop linking to News Ltd sites. Stop blogging about them, stop submitting to Digg, Stumbleupon, linking on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Murdoch appears not to want this… unless we pay, of course. It’s a ...

Crucial writing times

I’m *this* close to finishing my 2nd novel in a 10 month span. Usually I don’t write a lot about specific writing progress here, because like all blogging novelists, known or unknown, you realise quickly it’s just not that interesting. But I’ve almost kind of hit a snag. On the current project, I seem to ...

I don’t feel like a “victim”, that’s for sure

Apparently I could be classed as a “victim” of the financial crisis now. At work, my hours have been cut back to four days a week. They’re desperate to save money more than anything else, so now I only work there Tuesday to Friday. This is a cut, and would apparently make me a victim ...

Quiet one, but productive

Really quiet weekend, almost entirely a strictly at home affair, which helped the bank balance, my health, and getting things done around the house. Pretty poor weather as well, which has been a running theme all week, and since that’s been no good for my health, it was better to stay home as much as ...

Present buying and working room

I tried to buy Will another birthday present today, when we were out shopping at Rouse Hill. A Monsters vs Aliens storybook. It nearly worked too, but when he caught sight of it he nearly blew a fuse in his attempts to get it immediately. We had to hide it and deny everything… that boy ...

Can you hear me?

Another hospital trip today, this time mainly for Alex. A hearing test… to put it bluntly we’re quite sure heĀ  has some hearing problems, we’re just not sure how much. It would explain a lot, like his speech, and his understanding of things, and the way he reacts, or doesn’t react, to us in so ...
